Shanghai officials tag 50,000 taxicabs to ensure authenticity

RFID is gaining traction in Asia as a solution for product authentication in a region that is plagued by counterfeit products in the consumer goods sector. Now, Shanghai officials have attached RFID tags to 50,000 taxicabs in China’s largest city to ensure that all taxicabs are registered and to eliminate fake cabs.

A story in Asia Pacific FutureGov says that authorities have identified nearly 300 fake taxis since the RFID system was rolled out.

It is the latest move in Asia to curb counterfeit products. NXP estimates that 150 million bottles of wine and alcohol will be tagged in Asia this year alone to allow consumers to authenticate product on store shelves. And the Chinese government recently requested that imported bird nests — considered to be “the caviar of the East” in Asia – carry RFID tags to fight off a thriving counterfeiting business for the pricy food items.

Here’s an excerpt from the FutureGov article:

The tag, which will be pasted on the left side of the windshield, contains information including license plate number, engine number, color of the taxi, and details of the operating license. Law enforcement personnel will be able to scan the tag using a handheld device and instantly recognize whether the taxi is licensed.
